    Sorry for all the pics, but I'm trying to locate a manual for this incubator. The only info I can make out on it is a metal tag that says Sears Roebuck and Co model number 228.7251 and a sticker that says David Bradley.The closest I can locate is a picture on www.searsarchive.com in the 1951 Spring catalog that looks very similar, but the wording is to grainy to make out. I purchased it from an friends' elderly mother who passed away before being able to locate any paperwork. I also purchased 2 round metal Brower incubators at the same time. Any info at all would be absolutely wonderful! Thank you in advance if you're able to help!

    If you search redwood tabletop incubator, I think you might get better results to match it up to... I don't know which bators Sears sold, so can't think of the original name to look for, sorry... dunno if you really need a manual though, looks like it needs a complete overhaul... there are some DIY threads for cabinet type bators you should be able to find the proper info you need in those... am on phone so I don't have links...

    @WalnutHill didn't you gut and restore a similar one? Or can you direct to good links to help, please?

    Oh, just thought of something... I wonder if it's a Top Hatch? Try searching that too... :)
